All dressed up…

That’s tired, tired, tired.

As in I fell out of my chair earlier. Asleep. And I was on a train, so people noticed.

That might qualify as 105 percent.

Time warp

My advice for today: never take time for granted.

As in, don’t assume your smartphone clock is always right. Like I did this morning.

alarm clock graphicI woke up and glanced at my phone — 6am.

Perfect.

I could turn off my usual 6:30 alarm (because I hate alarms) and check my email, Facebook, etc. before I woke up the dog, who I could hear snoring on his pillow.

A lazy, relaxing start to the day.

When the two of us ventured out into the living room some 45 minutes later, the DVR clock held a surprise  —

It was 5:45, not 6:45 like my phone seemed to think.

A quick check of my phone’s clock settings revealed that the “automatic date and time” selection that links your phone to the network time was unchecked.

I don’t know how that happened. I certainly didn’t do it.  But consider this post an opportunity for you to double check your smartphone settings…

And get all the sleep you deserve tonight.

Sleepy time

Your life is a reflection  of how you sleep, and how you sleep is a reflection  of your life. — Dr. Rafael Pelayo

My dog makes my life great (and we both sleep like babies).

Happy Weekend!

Mite not

mattress
I just read on the Interwebs that the average household mattress contains 2 million dust mites.

I don’t share this because misery loves company.

I just wonder:

Where did dust mites live before mattresses were invented?

Mattresses with linen or cotton covers didn’t appear until the mid-18th century.  Were dust mites nomadic before that time?  Did man’s invention change their way of life?  Make them fat and lazy?

Are dust mites bigger and scarier now then they used to be??

I won’t be sleeping tonight.

The letter Z

Tonight was sponsored by the letter Z…

…as in I fell asleep on the couch soon after I ate dinner, and woke up around 11.

(Perhaps it was sponsored by many Zzzzzzzzz’s.)

When I did wake up, my first thought was, “Man, I”m ready for bed.”

I must be catching up on sleep I lost back in college or something.

That’s a thing, right?

Yawn

I have never been good at napping.

Today I learned how.

Barely woke up in time to write this…and am wondering how long I have to stay awake for it to count.

Rory Dog and I are in total agreement on this, which is awesome.

Happy Sunday, everyone.

Sleepy time

I have never been good at naps.

I sleep very soundly at night, so I don’t often feel the need for one.  And when I have taken one, I am groggy and dull for the rest of the day.

But today was different.

I returned last night from a quick business trip to Atlanta, and had a tennis lesson this morning.  By 2pm I was struggling to keep my eyes open.  Then I wondered…why fight it?

Three hours later, I awoke feeling great.  And I don’t think I will have any problems sleeping tonight.

Maybe I’m getting the hang of this!
